, ladiespresident obama has been studying all aspects of the job and now the country is poised for progress. now mitt romney wants to be president so badly he is foaming at the mouth and saying anything at any time trying to hoodwink the voters. he missed his chance to beat mccain, then he would have made decisions obama has made. now that the obama administration has made the tough decisions, now mr. romney wants to take credit and hoodwink the voters. he had a fair chance to win in 2008 and then he could decide to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a h

that they are the barack obama of this race because they are trying to unite this country and bring about a unifying theme. it's going to be up to the voters to decide whether or not that's the case, but interesting to note that the president is also starting to talk about those themes. he started doing that yesterday. he's expected to do that throughout this weekend, and so it's going to be interesting to watch as both of these candidates sort of recalibrate these messages, you know, fine tune them, hone them for the final few days of this race, randi. >> the battle to be the great uniter certainly is -- is under way. jim acosta, thank you very much. >> you can watch the rest of governor romney's rally on cnn.com where they are streaming it live. >>> thousands of jobs added, but the unemployment rate ticks up in the final jobs report before the election. our christine romans will join us live to take a closer look inside those numbers. begins with back pain and a choice. take advil, and maybe have to take up to four in a day. or take aleve, which can relieve pain all day with just two pills. good eye.

change and it helps make crystal clear that the choice that president barack obama is putting in front of the country and why they are discouraged or confused and that's why building the relationship and the block cap pens and volunteers that are pulling the vote, driving with vans to get people to early vote in ohio and milwaukee as we speak. it's so incredibly critical. >> mary kay, jamal simmons, thank you both for your time tonight. >> thank you. >>> coming up, uncovering the republican effort to suppress the vote in florida. there's a leak to the ugly past and we're revealing it tonight. the chairman of the florida republican party tells it all. next.

, tackling the long-term debt crisis in this country. you do it with a balance of higher taxes on wealthier households, which is what president obama wants, or do you do it almost basically entirely by cutting spending, which is what mitt romney wants? number one. number two, health care. should there be a larger expanded government role to insure that everyone has health care or not? do you have much more private sector oriented solution, which would allow some people not to have health care, which is what mitt romney wants when he wants to repeal obama care? both pieces really get at that very basic choice. i think those are the two central things here. how are we going to pay for a reduction in our debt in terms of our tax code, and number two, our health care system, which is both a matter of insuring people and also it's also a debt question. >> michael, is there any way to measure who picks up which copy in terms of who supports -- who gets more support this go-round? >> you know, i don't know the answer to that question. it's a great one, but, look, you know, we're proud because, you
. after the mccain/obama election that if we were monitoring a third-world country and there was the ten point spread between exit polls and election results we would be sure there was fraud and apparently that was the task. now i have just read that amazing expense of major news outlets. >> i am so disappointed. the one saying that finally occurred to me, you may have seen me making this point the other night, polls have often been wrong. they have never been wrong in our direction. in los angeles, the mayor of los angeles was running for reelection, he was way ahead of the polls and got those lines, bradley had won the election based on early returns and it turned out he had lost. the same happened in every game yet and new york and the action results on election day and pollsters came back and said they have a good excuse. people are lying to us because they don't want to tell us they are not voting for the black man. if there's ever an election where it is operating this would be. i was on the dennis miller show yesterday and someone from michigan said he brought home a romney yard s
>>> welcome back to our continuing coverage of hurricane sandy. president barack obama suspending his campaigning, now back to the primary duties of his job as the country's leader. just moments ago he was at fema headquarters in washington, d.c. talking about the hurricane. let's listen in. >> good afternoon, everybody. obviously all of us across the country are concerned about the potential impact of hurricane sandy. this is a serious and big storm. and my first message is to all people across the eastern seaboard, mid-atlantic going north, you need to take this very seriously. follow the instructions of your state and local officials because they are going to be providing you with the best advice in terms of how to deal with this storm over the coming days. we just had an excellent meeting with the fema team here, the various agencies that are in charge, including the department of defense, department of energy and others that are going to need to respond very quickly. under craig fugate's leadership here at fema, we've had a chance to talk to the region al officials as well, a
obama in tent 08 and thought he was going to be a unifier that brought our country together, are very disappointed that our country is as divided as it's ever been. something i said today in peb pen, which i think is true. i am a republican. i love the republican party. i love america more. i think our folks will tell you, as well today, they want a leader who will bring america together and help save america and brick america and its economy back to where it is expected to be. >> greta: are i saying you think it would be a bad thing if president obama were re-elected? >> i think it sets us back that his ideas are wrong for the future. they are not the right ideas to get us moving forward. if he word processor to be re-elected -- and it's not going to happen -- we are not going to have the economic groakt that we need or expect. i don't think we will get a plan to save medicare. i don't think we will have a pro-american energy policy. it is not just the things -- bad things that might happen, it's the good things that won't happen. it's the busy things that will have to wait. i don't
pie obama. everybody knows i have a prejudice and a beans bias against obama. i hope he loses -- i want him to lose big. i want this country to reject everybody he stands for. that's what my dream is. >> greta: to someone who has a good idea of how the candidates are feeling right now, senator john mccain. good evening. i am curious at this late date, is there much either candidate can do to woo votes? >> well, i think this libya fiaso and tragedy is turning some veterans' votes and some active-duty military. i am hearing from veterans all over america. they are angered and disgusted. our active-duty military people believe they can't trust the president of the united states. i am hearing from them everywhere. and so, it may have an impact, for example in the state of florida, 1.6 million veterans and their families and they can have an impact. they can in ohio as well. the latest scandals, as you know, the latest -- one of the latest is that -- there was a gathering in the consulate in benghazi of the security people. they reviewed the fact that al qaeda was in the area in big tim
policies that failed our country so badly. >> the campaign is out with new ads. >> the president save the auto industry. >> president clinton says mr. obama needs to strike a good tone. >> it would be who both candidates to close on a positive note, making a case for themselves, a case against the other guy. >> tomorrow, the president had to ohio and will be spending the entire day. he has three different campaign stops, underscoring the importance of the buckeye state. let's get a look at mitt romney's final push. >> we saw mitt romney soften his tone during sandy but that has all changed. it is now back to business and game on. >> if i am elected -- a slip of the time in virginia, but he quickly went back into his stump speech and a new line of attack against the president. >> we don't need a secretary of business to understand business, we need a president who understands business and i do. >> he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is add another bureaucrat. >> >> there is no question he can win. >> a republican strategist says the best way to close the
, and most of all sticks to the message. barack obama had his chance. it is time for mitt romney to fix the economy. that has been the message in manassas. >> these are critical times in this country and so you have a choice. america is going to have a choice. he city cannot fix washington from the inside. we will give him that chance. will have 40 straight months of unemployment above 8%. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. >> paul ryan has also made frequent visits to virginia. >> do we want to stay on the path that president obama has placed a son? i take it as a no. >> ryan brought the message back to jobs. >> he said this would create jobs and prevent unemployment from getting about 8%. >> another circuit has been his wife ann. he hasshe insists women also need to focus on the economy. >> as we now this economy has had women harder than men. it has been much tougher on them. >> virginia has been the selected site for other major romney messages. he chose emi for his foreign policy address. >> i know the president hope for a safer and prosperous middle east
about at parties for people. that's the way obama s. they don't want him to run the country. they just want to say they voted for him. >> that's an insicive remark. and i am not used to that coming from you. remi, are you a woman, i think. do you find this ad offensive, inoffensive, or would you like to express some kind of outrage as people would like you to? >> i am outraged. does that satisfy you? >> i think you were faking it which falls in line with this idea. >> i am not offended. i do find it to be a stupid ad. it is disappointing. >> it is geared at people like you. , young, single women. >> this is what i will say, it is disappointing that president obama is putting out an ad like this. it seems such a dumbing down of the messages. we should be elevating the discourse. i don't think you can compare your first vote to your first time. it is also disappointing because the way she describes a woman's first time having sex is probably not the way most women have sex the first time. >> do tell. >> please be clearer on that. you need specifics to back up your point. >> instead of el
the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a calculated strategy on his part. now, you could say, "and it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a number of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debates making a difference is that, had there been debates in the goldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgovern/nixon election, i think we would not have had the blowout landslides that we had. what debates do is take the caricaturing of the challenger and give the challenger a chance to stand there and be who the challenger would like to be in front of that audience. i t
all over this country nine more days. >> reporter: on cnn senior obama advisory david axelrod was asked how the storm would impact the race. >> we have to focus on how to help people during the storm and hope it clears out and that by the next weekend we'll be free of it and people can focus on the election. >> reporter: now romney heads to the swing state of iowa on monday. he got a boost with the endorsement of the des moines register. the paper has not endorsed a republican since richard nixon. that was 40 years ago. the president was unable to revive the struggling economy. and no sign of four more years. jan crawford, cbs news, marion, ohio. >> coming up, calculating the cost of hurricane sandy. and insurance companies gear up for an onslaught of claims. this is the "cbs morning news". claims. this is the "cbs morning news". clusters of pustules, pimples. i had this shingle rash right next to my spine. the soreness was excruciating. it was impossible to even think about dancing. when you're dancing, your partner is holding you. so, his hand would have been right in the sp
think about those as not the hether country is better off now than it would've been, had obama not been president. we were in a deep recession. and president obama's having the difficulty of having to make the argument that, "things are better than they would have been, had i not done what i have done." but ty're still not what they ought to be. and that's a tough case for the incumbent. and governor romney's exploitiut it every inch of the way. >> my favorite whopper was when paul ryan said that the reason that they don't want to say how they will change the loopholes is because they'll be attacked. people will say mean things about them. and that democrats and republicans won't be able to work together. "joe biden is partisan but i, paul ryan, know what real bipartisanship is all about." this from the most ruthless, relentless, disciplined right wing unified front that i believe the nation has ever be seen. this is the person who is saying, "bipartisanship is what we're all about. and you democrats don't understand what that means." >> yeah, buthere's, there's one other thing.th somet

, just as i think coattails are playing a big role across the country in a lot of races. we think that elizabeth warren is going to win in massachusetts. she's going to defeat incumbents got down because president obama will get most of the vote. there's a weak candidates in north dakota, a republican, who we think he's going to pull it out because romney will be the winner of 56% and the coattails will pull him across. the stamping applies in virginia. host: have you called the race for romney or obama in virginia? guest: we will do that on monday. we believe virginia, colorado, wisconsin, iowa, new hampshire, are the ones that are the closest. we based that not just on bowling averages but on very good sources in those states. they hold the key to the election. for those who think romney will carry ohio, maybe they are right, but we don't see it that way. if we have that leaning obama. we shall see on monday whether any of them slip. we are monitoring them on an hourly basis. we are looking to the jobs report on friday. it may be the last piece of new information that could affe
storm in the northeast. president obama spoke in green bay, wisconsin just a few hours ago. >> governor romney has been using all his tail limits as a sales map to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we have been cleaning up after for the past four years. >> with just five days left until the election president obama hit the trail today and came out swinging against mitt romney, he also touched preyful on the storm's impact, pledging to help those whose lives in his words have been turned upside down. >> there is no question in my view that -- that we really can't have four more years like the last 4 years, i know the obama folks are chanting 4 more years, four more years but or chant is this, five more days, five more days is our chant. >> just about an hour ago mitt romney held a rally in roanoke, virginia, romney once again asked supporters to donate to the red cross to help the storm victims but he quickly turned his sites on the election, mocking president obama for suggesting a cabinet level department of business. romney said
of the few people in hollywood, willing to speak out against president obama. and this summer, movie icon, clint eastwood made headlines with his harsh critique of the administration. earlier, i had a chance to talk with him about the upcoming election and the state of the country. like his speech at the rnc, he was not mincing words about president obama. joining us now, hollywood star himself, the one and only -- i guess star of the republican national committee, as well, that's clint eastwood. welcome to the program. great to finally meet you. >> good to be with you. good to be with you, sean. >> sean: i appreciate it. you said you wanted to make three points at the republican national convention. you wanted to point out not everyone is left in hollywood. you made that point. you talked about -- you know, obama made a lot of broken promises. and then the biggest point, if somebody doesn't do a good job, it's okay to let 'em go. tell us how you got involved in this? >> well they asked me fiwanted to come back there and be involved in the convention. i didn't know exactly how to be invol
, president obama made the case he is moving the country forward. >> we know what change looks like. and what the governor's offering ain't it. >> reporter: ohio could decide who wins the white house. not only are the candidates spending a lot of time there in these closing days. they're bombarding voters with fresh tv ads. >> who will do more for the auto industry? >> reporter: mitt romney is airing a new commercial in ohio saying workers in china benefited from the auto bailout. at a rally outside columbus, the president fired back. >> you don't scare hard working americans just to scare up some votes. >> reporter: with the race tight in nine swing states, both candidates will sprint through battleground states this weekend trying to win over a shrinking number of undecided voters and get their supporters to the polls. danielle nottingham, cbs news, the white house. >>> it was an influx of cash meant to help defeat prop 30 and support prop 32. but for now, we will not know who is behind the $11 million donation from arizona. the state appeals court said late today that those donors can rema
whether it's biden on letterman or obama, the weird contrast is to a miserable country. greg is having a good time, i'm here eating beans. >> true. i don't know if he is eating beans, though. >> dana: evidence of that. >> greg: that was uncalled for. i have a g.i. problem. >> andrea: on the youth vote thing, it's interesting that he does go to the youth channels. most politicians talk to the audience they hope people were born yesterday. in the case of obama his supports really were born yesterday. he did say no to nickelodeon. for the record, i'm not buying "us weekly." i will read it at the nail salon so you are not getting my $4.99. sometimes this can be good press. one thing that george bush did in 2004. he wrote a letter to my daughters and published in "glamour." just his words. such a good thing. if you control it, good opportunities. you can't control it. >> dana: they ask all the questions are loaded with hypocrisy. >> greg: remember when abe lincoln did "cosmo." >> bob: what is a mistake that was. can i borrow that magazine when i get my nails done? >> andrea: get a pedicure
now, waiverring in wisconsin. president obama losing his lock on cheese country. a new poll shows the president and governor romney tied in wisconsin. is this a sign voters in the midwest are shifting stu port to governor romney budget any? >> wisconsin. this is important now. wisconsin 49-49 and you go back to 2008, obama carried wisconsin 56-42. >> something big is happening in wisconsin and there is stuff happening in oregon and stuff happening in iowa and there is stuff happening in iowa, ohio. and there is stuff happening in north carolina. there is stuff happening all over the place and the obama regime is looking smaller and smaller and smaller as they react to it. >> we have created 5.2 million jobs over 32 months. what is mitt romney's plan? he has is no plan. that is what the american people should be focused on. >> this is a huge election and we can't afford four more years of this and we have a big choice in front of us. go on with the broken promises not just on the economy but on the deficit and on social security and medicare. >> and the president's bigger promise t
, but not by a lot and it's always amayed me. the country is not happy with washington. i want to go back to the demographic yes. what makes ohio different from all the other battleground states and all of the other mathematics from obama campaign. it's the state that demograph demographically doesn't fit what they're trying to do everything that they're trying to do in every other swing state is about hispanics and gender. not ohio. the demographic group that mitt romney performs best with is white men. the demographic group he's performing poorly in ohio is white men. auto workers in toledo, akron, northwest part of the state. >> i think the reason for that is a, what rachel mentioned, the fight over union rights. a lot of counties that voted for kasich in the election swung overwhelmingly in favor of the unions in the referendum. secondly again the auto rescue. which makes a big difference in that quadrant you talked about. which is white working-class voters. and governor kasich dissed michigan, which i suppose is what you do when you're governor of ohio. michigan has had one of the b
that is going on. i agree with the lady when she says that president obama is the leader of the country. you are damn right he is the leader. and it is time he man up and take responsibility for the actions of his four years, whether it was his fault or not. host: we will leave it there. on twitter jim says there is a stupid question. fema will contract with private enterprise to clean up the mess and deliver the food and water. ray in omaha, nebraska, independent caller. good morning. caller: good morning. greetings to you. we appreciate the work that you do here in getting the voices of the people. i can't agree with the lady that just spoke any more. i'm very embarrassed. when you ask who you trust, i trust god first of all. man is subject to error. we all are. nobody is perfect. and it is disconcerting to hear the hate being spewed cutting up romney or cutting up someone whether we have enough on our plate that we need to correct. our country is in horrible condition and we send out money to repair mosques in egypt when charity begins at home. i believe in charity. i raised money. but wh
